We are thrilled to introduce Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) available at 10XTO with Level 1 and Level 2 therapists. Read on to find out more about Fascial Stretch Therapy and why it will benefit clients of all levels of athleticism.
WHAT IS FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY?
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a full body functional restoration system that targets the fascial nettings of our body. It is a table-based assisted stretching practice with numerous benefits.
FST puts an emphasis on mobility, stability and optimizing body performance/longevity. This highly effective stretch method targets the stretch and release of connective fascial tissue and joint capsules, not just muscles.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY?
FST has a wide range of benefits from improving an athlete's range of motion to stress relief that has built up in your body from your regular day-to-day activity.
FST encourages circulation, improves movement performance and can optimize flexibility. FST has significantly improved posture, balance and coordination in clients and is recommended to reduce your risk of injury and/or aid in injury recovery.
WHAT HAPPENS IN AN FST SESSION?
Your Fascial Stretch Therapist will begin by using passive stretch techniques to sync clients breathing with their Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) and calm the mind/body. The Therapist will stretch the client through the many layers of fascial tissue from bone to skin, head to toe.
The most common areas of pain and opportunity for the modern day human (from sedentary lifestyle to high-level athlete) are neck, shoulders, low back, hips and knees. Your mind will be at ease as you are working through a comprehensive network of stretches at an increasing joint range.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO MY FST SESSION?
FST is performed with clients fully clothed in athletic or gym wear. No jeans, shoes, or wrist/ankle jewelry.
FST is offered to Members of 10XTO. If you are interested in learning more about a membership at 10XTO, please contact membership at firstname.lastname@example.org.
